A fascinating look at a chrome miners strike in the eastern Albania town of Bulqiza. The 3 month strike seems to end in the miners favor except that less than 2 weeks later there was a massive explosion that killed one and wounded several others.
And so the mine was closed. The miners were not paid during the strike, and with the mine now closed, their lives are even more difficult. Mining is a unforgiving line of work, and this projects allows us a brief look at the lives of those who work underground.
